Re: Randori No Kata - history etc

Here's a way to look at that kata... you start out applying force directly onto Uke's centerline... each waza takes your "connection point" further from the centerline...

as far as the Uki waza goes (and this may apply to some of the other portions of the kata), I've been taught that they are arranged in the order of timing in Uke's cycle of recovery from earliest to latest...

Play with those two ideas, see what you think. May turn out differently in how you've been taught.
